Sabre Security Equipment Corporation is a provider of personal and home security needs since 1975. They are a family-owned business that has specifically specialized in personal pepper spray. Sabre caters to law enforcement as well as consumers internationally. Sabre’s security equipment is a deterrent, and markets mostly to smaller dwellings and on-the-go use. There are better options for consumers with large homes and families to protect. In addition to items such as personal stun-guns and pepper spray, Sabre provides three types of protective security alarm features in their Home Series:
- Wireless Home Protection Systems
- Standalone Alarms
- and Personal Alarms
Home Series – What’s in It?
Sabre Security Equipment Corporations has a Home Series, which focuses on wireless home security. Personal Alarms are presented as keychains that are able to be taken with the individual for added protection. Standalone Alarms are individual alarms that can be placed around the home in areas such as windows, doors, and garages. Finally, Sabre’s Wireless Home Protection System comes with:
- 2 door/window sensors
- one smart panel
- 120 decibel alarm feature
- a motion sensor and mounting bracket
- and one key fob remote
Other items are also sold with this package for additional costs. However, it is important to remember that none of these devices are professionally monitored. Sabre is also missing some key features of a traditional security system, such as CO detectors and monitored smoke detectors.
Unmonitored Systems are Vulnerable
Even Sabre’s Wireless Protection System, which is their most advanced option, remains an unmonitored device. Unmonitored systems, however, are considered a major vulnerability. Having a professionally monitored system provides a higher level of security. Only monitored systems come with 24-hour surveillance by a professional security team. With unmonitored systems, you’re largely on your own as far as responding to an intrusion. Consider using a professionally monitored home security system from Protect America.
It All Adds Up
Sabre offers most of their security devices to be purchased individually, rather than being bundled in a package. This goes for everything except their Wireless Home Protection System. However, that system will cost you as well. Sabre offers their system package for about $120. This package only comes with two sensors, as stated above. How many houses do you know with only one door or window? Not many. Chances are, you’ll have to purchase additional sensors and motion detectors. Additional door/window sensors will cost you an extra $20 each, and extra motion detectors run at about $35 a piece.
At Protect America, you will receive all of you equipment for free with purchase of monthly monitoring. Monitoring starts as low as $19.99 a month. Additionally, all devices are guaranteed with a lifetime warranty from the date of purchase.
This customer had a poor experience with Sabre Security regarding the functionality of a sensor.
I recently purchased two of these for each of the doors to my apartment. After installing the batteries I tested each unit since I had read that other reviewers had performance issues with theirs. The first would only trigger the alarm one out of every three attempts.
